    You have to get the phone unlocked. Since it's no longer on an active Verizon account, you'll have to buy the unlock code - look on eBay for people selling unlock codes. (There's a different code for eaxh handset.)

    Make sure that the phone is capable of GSM - there's only 1 CDMA carrier (Verizon is CDMA) in Ghana - Expresso Telecom. If you're using it on a GSM carrier, and it's capable of GSM data, make sure it has a 2100MHz radio. (Look up the model number on Google - cdma htc 806 specs, or whatever the model number is.) If it doesn't, it won't get anything but slow speed data.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have, and what's its exact model number? Not all phones may support the network bands that are used on Ghana, so even if you did carrier-unlock the phone, there's no guarantee it'll work there.
